House of Van Gogh

This corresponds to the house where Vincent Van Gogh lived in Paris. If you look closely at a closed window with a sunflower outside, that was the apartment.

Vincent lived in his brothers Theo's house in Montmartre from 1886 to 1888. For him, the view that the apartment had besides the neighborhood was a source of inspiration. He lived there for two years and made approximately 200 paintings, more than he had done in his entire life. He leaves us a picture of his view in "View of the room".

At the height of the artistic explosion in Montmartre, he met painters such as Monet, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro who taught him to use a more vivid color palette and to paint with natural light. He discovered the fact of capturing the "impression" of light in paintings. He also tried new techniques from Japan or pointillism. Finally, he falls in love with a prostitute who breaks his heart and leaves Paris for Arles.
